An attack on a research team to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus in Guinea killed eight people yesterday, including three journalists. The research team worked in remote areas in southeastern Guinea, educating local residents about the dangers of contracting the Ebola virus and the necessary prevention measures. “Eight bodies were found in a rural latrine. Three of them had their throats cut,”Damantang Albert Camara, spokesman for the government, told Reuters in an interview.
To date, the outbreak of Ebola, which began in West Africa in March this year, has affected 5,357 people, with at least 2,630 deaths, according to WHO. Despite the efforts of the authorities and various medical organizations, Ebola continues to spread.
The situation is aggravated by the poor awareness and distrust of the population in the public health system. So, many sick people prefer to be treated at home, rather than go to the hospital. By dying with relatives, they infect their family, and the epidemic spreads quickly. In addition, many do not inform the authorities about the deaths of their loved ones in order to bury their bodies in the ground, following tradition.
The Ebola virus causes one of the most dangerous hemorrhagic fevers, against which there is currently no targeted therapy, and all treatment is reduced to alleviating the symptoms of the disease. Ebola usually begins with severe weakness, headache, muscle pain, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and vomiting. Then there is a dry cough and stitching pains in the chest, dehydration develops; death occurs against the background of internal bleeding and shock. The mortality rate from the Ebola virus can be as high as 90%, but during the current outbreak it is about 60%.
There is no specific treatment for Ebola; there are only a few experimental drugs whose efficacy and side effects are not fully understood, such as ZMapp serum and TKM-Ebola serum. Due to the uncontrolled spread of the epidemic, the World Health Organization (WHO) has allowed the use of experimental drugs in humans, but the production process of drugs is slow and laborious, and therefore the possibility of supplying them to the regions of Africa affected by the current Ebola outbreak is limited and available only for medical staff.
Elderly people are infected from loved ones much more often than young people. Scientists emphasize that infected people become contagious before symptoms appear
